  1. Your 9600 GT could be overheating and causing graphics output to fail. Or it could be nearing the end of its life.

    Does this problem occur only in GTA IV?
  2. no its not overheating because when i run furmark the highest temp is only 64C for 3 hours..and its happening in every game and sometimes while im surfing the net its,, random.
  3. It's probably a hardware problem, but you'll have to troubleshoot and single out what component is causing it. Switch out a part with something older and see if the problem still occurs.
  4. sorry for the late reply but i replace it with gt610 and no problem anymore ,,,and then i switch back the problem still occurs
  5. So the problem lies with the 9600GT. Replace it.
